Winter Window

by Roger J Kenyon

Snow pixie dance

near a window whirl

wind whipped askance

in an opaque twirl.

Bold as a can-can prance

charms you unfurl

on an updraft lance

wisps of awe you hurl.

Dance again snow

pixie dance.


Author's Note: Winter is my favourite season......poetry is everywhere.

There are so many phrases in this I enjoyed. I have lived, "w/indow whirl wind whipped" as more than just a spectator, but so much so that I recognize the wording. Truly loved "a can-can prance" because it can be read two ways. Read it first without using my glasses and it read, "wisps of awe you hurt. So it was like a dose of pain killer to read it with glasses, so I can see... "wisps of awe you hurl". Highest marks!

Lovely is the word, I agree. And living in Nebraska, I'm an expert. Beautiful piece of work.

I especially like "wind whipped askance" and "can-can prance".

I love this!Congrats on POTD. These visions brought back visions of my own....long ago memories at my grandma's in upstate NY in the wintertime where I played amidst the falling snowflakes and snowdrifts growing by the minutes.
